Abstract [en]

In this paper I make an attempt to develop a conceptual framework to be use in a study of the body practices of knowledge workers. Following the distinction between physical labor and knowledge work the work of knowledge workers are mainly seen as involving the use of the mind while the use of the body is mainly associated with physical labor. However, in these research notes I want to argue that also in the work of knowledge workers the use of the body play an important part. Based on this argument I develop a framework for studying the embodiment of professional identity among knowledge workers. The framework has three perspectives: the competence perspective, the consumption perspective and the power perspective.

Abstract [en]

Professional competence have recently been described in terms of “ways of being”, defined by Sandberg and Pinnington (2009) as integrating specific understandings (of self, work, other people, tools etc) in the practice of the profession. In this paper I want to follow this path by investigating how the way of being a professional may be shaped. The research objective is to explore how the recruitment practices in a high status law firm shape the becoming of the business lawyer. The study is based on 12 interviews with recruiters (HR-specialists, recruitment group and partners) and 5 interviews with newly recruited junior lawyers at a high status business law firms in Sweden. The results of the study show that identification of competent candidates is perceived as unproblematic with top grades from law school and social competence shown in the recruitment interview as the main criteria used. In fact the profile of the candidates who get selected to interview for the positions as junior lawyer are described as quite similar. The results of the study also show how the impression management practices of the firm and the profession has contributed to shape the candidates into becoming the individual the firm seeks. A conclusion from the paper is to suggest that the ways of becoming a professional does not only incorporate taking on understandings on a cognitive level but also the physical embodiment of selected experiences over time.
